2 Claims, N0 Drawings LOWER ALKYL ESTERS OF P-BENZOYLPHENOXY ISOBUTYRIC ACID The invention concerns new derivatives of phenoxyalkylcarboxylic acidsand their method of preparation, characterized in that para-hydroxy-benzaldehyde, a para-hydroxy-phenone, or p-hydroxy-benzoic acid is condensed with chloro-acetic acid or one of the superior homologs thereof, the acid or the diacid obtained being possibly converted afterwards.
The acid obtained can be converted into an ester according to the classic sulfuric esterification method in the presence of a chosen alcohol.
The ester obtained can bealso converted'into an by boiling to reflux in the presence of chosen aromatic or aliphatic amine or its derivatives.
The amide can also be obtained from an acid chloride according to the usual methods, from the corresponding acid.
The aldehyde or ketone function is converted intoan oxime by heat treatment in the presence of hydroxylamine chlorohydrate.
The acid obtained is possibly converted into its halogenated para-. 1 derivative by the addition of a halogen to a solution of the said acid in acetic acid in the presence of acetic anhydride.
The para-m halogen derivatives of the acid can also be converted into an ester, amide or oxime.
The ester or oxime can also be converted into phenoxy-alkyl, carbohydroxamic acid by bringing them to reflux in ethyl alcohol containing hydroxylamine and sodium.
The dehydration of the para-formyl-oxime-phenoxyalkyl carboxylic acid esters by boiling to reflux in the presence of acetic anhydride gives new chemical bodies which are the esters of para-cyano-phenoxy-alkylcarboxylic acids. The corresponding amides are obtained by boiling the said esters in the chosen amine.
The esters of para-cyano-phenoxy-alkyl-carboxylic acids are converted into para-carboxyamide-phenoxyalkyl-carboxylic acids by oxygenated water in a warm alkaline medium. These acids can be, in their turn, esterified then converted into an amide.
According to another characteristic of the invention the para-carboxy-phenoxy-alkyl-carboxylic acids or diacids obtained according to the general process can then be submitted to an esterification or an amidification or can be converted into a corresponding hydroxamic acid.
In particular acids of the above formula, i.e. wherein Y A and the alkyl chain is isobutyric, such as p-carboxyl-,p-formyl-, p-acetyl-, p-propionyl-, pbutyrylor benzoylphenoxyisobutyric .acids are obtained from sodium phenate and chloroform in an alkaline medium.
The new compounds obtained by these processes are particularly remarkable for their therapeutic applications in neurotrope, anti-inflammation, normolipemiant medicines, for example.
The formulae of the chemical compounds according to the invention are characterized by the presence on a phenyl ring of a ketone or aldehyde group, convertible into an oxime, acid, ester, amide, hydroxamic or nitrile acid in the para position in relation to the oxyalkyl group, or by the presence of a halogen in the to position of the chain in the para position in relation to the oxyalkyl group, and by the presence of an oxy-alkyl chain of 2,3 or 4 carbon atoms supporting an acid, ester, amide or carbohydroxamic function.

The alkyl derivatives corresponding to each of the five series can be an acetic or propionic chain (normal or iso).
In order to obtain the homologs of these five series for which the alkyl link is an isobutyric link, a slightly different method must be employed, which consists of: in a three column balloon flask of 1,000 cm, provided with'mechanical stirrer and a reflux refrigerant surmounted by a CaCl column is introduced 0.1 mole of a para-hydroxyphenylketone dissolved in 100 ml. of anhydrous acetone.

Reflux heating is then continued for 4 hours. 300 ml. of water is then added and the evaporation of the acetone is obtained in a vacuum. The aqueous'solution is then acidified to pH 3 with 12N HCl then extracted twice with 200 ml. of ether.
The etheral solution is extracted twice, each time with 150 ml. of saturated solution of sodium bicarbonate.
By acidification of the carbonate solutions to pH 3 with 12N HCl, an oil is formed which is extracted with 400 ml. of ether. The etheral solution is poured off, dried with Na SO4, then evaporated in a vacuum.
